That's How I knowDewy, light-toned skin.
Long, wavy hair
with "little girl" bangs.
Sweet scent touching your nostrils
as she nudges you and chuckles.
Your heartbeat quickens
with that moment of skin-to-skin contact.
You keep telling me to leave a name, number, and a brief message.
All Dressed Up And No Where To GoI drape myself in words
With redundant fabrics,
And "happy ending" slip-on shoes.
I conceal my precious nudity.
I hang "love" on one ear,
And "me" on the other.
